Course abstract

Students get acquainted with different classical computer control algorithms and decision support systems. Students are learned to work with V-REP programming platform, which is used to develop and test algorithms in virtual and experimental robotic environment.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

•Knowledge about fundamental computer control algorithms, decision support systems and its application in manufacturing;
•Skills to develop algorithms in virtual environment and to understand its operation;
•Competences to individually analyse manufacturing process and search for suitable algorithms for different proce
